VOL. Vf, NO. 8. $1.00 A YEAR. THEY OAMOT AQSEE. That Tariff Bill Is Causing Trouble Among Democrats. Washington, February 18 -The damo . ratio members of the senate committed on finance have decided tbey will sot be able to report the tariff bill to the full committee on Tuesday next, aa they had announced they would be, and one of the members of the sub-committee which has bad the bill under considers tion said to-day he would not attempt to say when the bill could be reported. "I shall be very well satisfied," he said, "if the bill ia in shape to be re ported by the beginning of next wetk." The committee had been very hopeful just before the adjournment Friday night of being able to fulfill Chairman Voorheea' promise to get the bill in readiness for the full committee this week, but after putting in a long day's work at the close of a week given up al most exclusively to the bill, the mem bera found it still in chaotic condition, and were compelled to admit to them selves, as they...

Bat there was something wanting on the whole ; 1 don't know what, and therefore cannot tell : Which pretty women the sweet souls call 80U1. UYRON. For the reason which the last chapter made known to the reader but of which Kate was ignorant, the entire week since Christmas had passed, and Clar ence had not visited the CotterelJ home stead. Though one of those strange inconsistencies of the mind, especially of the feminine mind, no sooner did Kate feel relieved of her dread that her lover might come than she began to feel incensed at him for not coming. Had he not assured her that he would come ? Did he not know that she was threatened with illness when they parted? Yet he not only had not come but had not even written to in quire concerning her health. Did such conduct show a very dear affection for her? Now, when a sensible young woman reaches this mental stage, i...

It was iust as well, for there was a letter in the office for Kate, of which the reader will learn more in tne next chapter. CHAPTER XH. A SOCIAL REBEL. Some respect for social fictions Hath been also lost by me : And some generous genuflexions, Which my spirit offered free To the pleasant old conventions of oar false humanity. Mrs. Bbownixg. During the last term at Haverhill Kate and Grace Alden, of Risington, had become ardent friends. Grace Alden was altogether different from Fanny Diegal, not only in complexion and in temperament, but also in opin ions. It was rumored that she was the favorite niece and prospective heir of a rich bachelor uncle; but she hated social conventionalities, and was thor oughly and sincerely democratic. To illustrate this trait of Grace's charac ter, I shall insert here an incident which some critic will doubtless say I should have inserted in a previous chapter, but l...

what experience has demonstrated to be business mistakes; and for like reasons we do not recommend the continuance in power in this country of the parties through whose instru mentality we have been brought to our present deplorable condition, es pecially as they frankly confess that the only thing they can suggest for our betterment is to let nature take her course. Now a word concerning the great wheat crop of 1892. The Capital says of it: We merely wish to point out that in 1332 the United States produced 612 million boshelB 170 millions more than enough to satisfy the wildest requirements on the army ration basis. On page 419 of the report of the secretary of agriculture for 1892 we are told that the total production of the United States for that year was 515,949,000 bushels, a slight differ ence from the Capital's figures of 96,051,000 bushels. Now let us take the actual product of 1892 and see about the great surplus. Subtract ing the 96,051,000 bushels from the Capital's 170,...

Q TISHi ADVOOATE TEE EMP02IA BEPUBLIOAI TALKS OP THE "IMPOSSIBLE." The Republican of February 9 again demonstrates that it can neither state the position of an op ponent fairly nor make an honest at tempt to answer an argument. In the whole controversy concerning the so-called Haymarket anarchists, which began with the publication of Governor Altgeld'a pardon, we have simply insisted that the people shall know the truth. We have said, and now repeat, as the American Federa tion of Labor at its late session de clared, that the trial and persecution of those men was a deadly blow of the representatives of organized cap ital aimed at the liberties of the American people. The press has given currency to the most outrage ous falsehoods concerning the whole affair, and has succeeded to a large extent through appeals to the preju dices of the people, in establishing false impressions by means of which great injustice has been done. Com paratively few people have been able to learn the real...

THE ADVOOATI2. 9 CONCERNING KANSAS. 3JOTE3. The Law and Order league of Wichita has gone into the hands of a receiver. This sounds like a joke, but it ia a fact The long-faced puritans of Topeka now want all places of business ia the city closed on Sunday, except, of course, such as are necessary to their comfort. Wichita wants the state fair. If Wichita expects the state to patronize that fraudulent concern known as the Southern Kansas Pair association she is mistaken. The municipal campaigns are being opened. If the Populists can show as great gains as they did last year there will be no doubt as to the result of the fall election.

10 Gat Eight With Truth. Editoe A-dvooate: Perhaps the meet izaportsnt difference between a reform j party end the plutocratic machine par tisa is that in the former difference of honest opinion between members of the fama party can be and are calmly and honestly discussed with a view to cor reot any unsound theories held by some members of the party, so as to place the party as a whole on the soundest and meet logical and unassailable position possible on the pending questions of the period, for a reform party is only per ra&nently strong when it is logically riffhtand morally just when it is in line with the laws of the universe, with immutable justice and eternal truth. With the old plutocratic parties "the machine" is everything and the Individ ual a cypher, and the latter must not and cannot question the truth, logic or justice, of the policies marked out by the leaders, his only duty being to affirm them at the polls or be counted disloyal to his party.

11 HAED TIMES VS. GOOD TIMES. What Makes the One and WteA Prevents the Other. no. ra. Editor Advocate: If I was to fol low the regular order and take a text for my discourse, it would ba the follow ing from the New York Herald, a non partisan organ, of some time since: "Under the federal administration of affairs the monopolist is everywhere and the people axe nowhere. The masses are cajoled and the classes are rampant The rich capitalist can have all he wants if he bleeds fairly before election; but the poor man must look out for him self. This is not a particularly inspir ing outlook; but we are optimistic enough to believe that there will be ft grand shake up by and by, and this crooked business be mads straight by popular indignation." To which I reply "so mote it be," or in the language of Patrick Henry, "Let her come; I repeat it, sir, let her come." In our discussion of the subject of money and finance, the British eystem has thus far commanded our attention. And I am loath t...

12 TEE SINGLE TAX. How It Would Benefit the Producer With out Injustice to Auycne. Editor Advocate: Hiving read some on the single tax theory, I thick I ea some good points in it; but wishing to understand it more thoroughly, I would like to have Mr. W. IL T. Wakefield or some other single tax reader of the Ad vocATEEat roe right on the following points. For instance: The rental value of wild or uncultivated land in the early Battlement of this county was from 10 to 30 cent a per acre. That is to say, the owner could sell the grass for that ac cording to the fertility of the land and its proximity to a shipping point If I understand the single tax theory, that would be the tax on farm land. Now A owes a farm of 160 acres under cultivation, with the necessary build togs, fences and water supply on it, which he renls to B for $1 per acre (the usual rent paid for improved land in this count;). Now since improvements ere not to be taxed, the difference be tween the rental value of wild ...

13 Pointers From Alabama. The Populists and Jeffersonian demo crats of Alabama, in state conyention at Birmingham February 8, nominated for governor R. F.

Judge Bolder was a large, fat, handsome, judicial-looking man near 50 years old. His large, well formed head was covered with a thick frowth of curly hair which had been lack but was now almost entirely gray. His face, though strong and firm, was relieved by an eye which betrayed a kindly, generous soul. Grace greeted Kate in the effusively affectionate manner in which young ladies usually greet each other, and then said: 'J Uncle, my friend Miss Cotterell, who is going to live here with me." "I am happy to meet you, Miss Cot terell, and I am glad you are to remain here," said the Judge, extending his hand. "J Jut I fear Miss Alden may make it ...

That evening the Judge and the editor called at the Avenue hotel, and as a re sult, Kate appeared next morning at the office of the Evening News and went to work.
